On the 16th November 1968 the constitution of the Board for the institution of university faculties in the city of Bergamo, attended by representatives from the City Council, the Provincial Council and the Chamber of Commerce, created the conditions necessary to the founding of new initiatives opened directly by the city and to the effective birth of the University of Bergamo.
The University of Bergamo is located in Lombardia, a region in Northern Italy with more than 10 millions inhabitants and one of the regions with the highest GDP pro capita in Europe. With a history older than the foundation of Rome, Bergamo grew as a key town in Mediaeval times and is now a bridge between Western and Eastern Europe: its airport is the Southern Europe hub for Ryanair and other low cost airlines, turning over 9 million passengers in 2012.

For "normal"/"general" medical treatments (e.g. flu, prescriptions, a cold, etc.) you have to go to a general practitioner (in Italian medico di base) and the visit will be free of charge.
